The simple box form elevated to a generational keepsake! Email: kraftersgallery@yahoo.com

• Before plastic and cardboard, people stored and carried their possessions in wooden boxes. Simple elegance and fundamental hand craftsmanship best describe these solid hardwood heirloom quality keepsakes. The simple box form has been elevated to a higher level of beauty and quality; to a level of art.

What started with crafting a Pinewood Derby® racer as a Cub Scout has turned onto an outlet for sharing my creative gifts with those that appreciate Simplicity and Quality.
As a young man I put my creative abilities on hold for 15 years serving in the United States Army. Following the completion of my time in the armed forces, I returned to the development of natural and useful works of art and form.
Supported by my wife, family, and wonderful customers I grew from a 10 X 10 shed to a fully equipped wood detailing facility ready to design and craft custom, made to order, heirloom quality products.
I feel that wood has a beauty and style of its own. It’s my life's passion to see the possibilities in the raw materials and work so that my customers could see it too in the finished product. The simple elegance of a keepsake box or custom art frame exemplifies the heirloom quality of hand craftsmanship and a desire to “keep it in the family.” Art does not have to be expensive; quality and craftsmanship should be free.
